My Students

I am so grateful that I get to teach kindergarten and help instill the love for learning in my students as they start their school journey.

Our school provides a unique kindergarten experience for our students because we are a building with only kindergarten classes.

Once our students graduate from kindergarten they will enter elementary school at a different building.

We are focused on early childhood and developing a foundation for our students. Each of our classrooms is a diverse community that includes students from many different socioeconomic and cultural backgrounds.

I have not yet gotten to know my amazing students this new school year but I can't wait to begin!

My Project

Help keep our classroom and kinders organized with their classroom and school mail! This purchase will be used daily for my students to take important information home to their parents.

These new mailboxes will be essential to help maintain constant parent communication.

This is a vital piece to help our students succeed. As a parent myself I know how important it is to keep families informed and up to date with classroom and school activities, student progress, and current classroom work.

In kindergarten we need sturdy mailboxes that can withstand our busy classroom. The mailboxes also need to be of a certain size for our little kinders.
